BY THE PRESIDENT (SIGNED) T. Roosevelt

“I’d like to be there watching
early in the morning,
when the sun comes up
to crown the mountains king!

And if, by chance, you dare to be there
high upon a mountain,
I swear that you can hear
the angels sing!”

If a song can capture the essence of place, the beautiful ballad “Colorado” echoes resoundingly as the theme for Sunset Rock at Monarch Ridge.

And, if you have ever wondered where the Monarch of the Realm would deign to stand to survey the majesty of his domains — this is the place!

Sunset Rock at Monarch Ridge is as close as you can aspire to anchoring your home atop a lofty, pristine, and prestigious aerie overlooking a seemingly-limitless expanse of mountain wilderness — while celebrating your daily life in the very lap of civility and security provided by a dynamic neighborhood of notable neighbors and friends.

“Monarch Ridge” is a 17.464-acre slice of paradise cresting at an elevation of 8,395 feet. Bathed in rarified air, Monarch Ridge parallels the majestic Front Range and Mummy Range of the Rocky Mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park. Your view perspective from Sunset Rock at Monarch Ridge encompasses 360 degrees. An uninterrupted panorama lies to the west. Bracketed between Hallet Peak to the west and Fairchild Mountain to the north, lie the crown jewels of the Rocky Mountains. Your eyes and your very being behold Mount Ypsilon towering to 13,514 feet as the centerpiece of a veritable visual feast of snow-capped mountains and glaciers. Mt.Ypsilon is attended like a bride by Flattop Mountain, Little Matterhorn, Joe Mills Mountain, Mount Chapin , and Mount Chiquita.

Sunset Rock is the dominant feature of Monarch Ridge. We invite you to compliment this veritable “tooth of time” with the home of your dreams. Awaken to the magic of “Alpenglow” as the sun springing forth from the prairies first paints the rocks and snow of the Rocky Mountain summits in vivid shades of pink. Enjoy your days enveloped by rocks and trees and limitless vistas. Revel in every sunset as the sun’s last rays slant down through the chiseled trough of Forest Canyon.

Then, when you are inspired to chronicle Rocky Mountain National Park’s many offerings, you won’t have far to go. Take just one step off your property at Monarch Ridge into the neighboring forest and you will have taken the first of a million happy steps into the vastness [425.25 square miles] of one of America’s favorite National Parks. Careful examination will reveal bronze Department of the Interior survey markers imbedded along the common boundary line of Monarch Ridge that is contiguous with the National Park. Monarch Ridge is, indeed, one of the largest private land holdings directly bordering this national treasure. And, if the unobstructed view to the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains is your “front yard,” then think of the vastness of the National Park adjoining you as your “side yard!” $1,250,000 is a significant investment. But, if you can envision the uninhabited 265,761 acres of the National Park in this “side yard” as added to your own, the price works out to less than $4.70 per acre to enjoy one of the finest high-mountain real estate offerings in America!

Over 350 miles of hiking trails trace their pathways to sky-mirror lakes enchantingly dubbed Sky Pond, Jewel, Nymph, Dream, Emerald, Tourmaline, Spruce, and Chasm. Tyndall, Andrews, and Taylor glaciers glisten from on high. And, 450 miles of rock-strewn streams stumble down the mountainsides in waterfalls and cascades that proclaim their fame with names like Columbine, Windy Gulch Cascades, Chaos Canyon Cascades, Marguerite Falls, and Alberta Falls. Then, when you are ready to visit the multitude of attractions that are directly accessible by automobile, you are less than five miles from the main Rocky Mountain National Park entrance. A lifetime of enchantment awaits!

And, if, for a moment, you can turn your back on the hypnotic aura of the Front Range and the Mummy Range of the Rocky Mountains, a similarly-striking vista thrusts skyward just behind you to the east. Ram’s Horn Mountain (as the modern saying goes) “has your back!” Enrobed with the dense evergreens of Roosevelt National Forest, Ram’s Horn Mountain rises 9,553 feet. High up on the vertical face of Ram’s Horn, a horizontal layer of white granite set against the darker rocks is reminiscent of the bright enamel smile of President Theodore Roosevelt, the signatory granter of the original land grant incorporating Monarch Ridge, and is known locally as “Teddy’s Teeth.”

Life at Monarch Ridge and Sunset Rock will invariably require a bit of forbearance on your part. Scores, sometimes virtual multitudes, of interlopers will be noted in their passage across your property. Nary an admission fee nor a dime of rent will ever be forthcoming. The elk, the deer, the wild turkeys, coyotes, and the occasional bear, bobcat, or cougar that regularly forage this place were here in their generations long before your arrival — or ours!

SUNSET ROCK

Monarch Ridge is more than a one-in-a-million parcel of real estate. And, Sunset Rock is more than in impressive chunk of granite. Hand in hand they are a Rosetta Stone for the ages unlocking and chronicling a panoply of American history. Harken back 40 to 70 million years ago when the Colorado prairies blossomed with mountains forged by the titanic forces of tectonic uplift. Sunset Rock is a stoic remnant of that dynamic era anchored firmly to the firmament. It arches its back for over 120 feet in a north-south line. Sunset Rock is the perfect vantage point for a westerly view. In noble days of pre-history, an entire tribe could stand shoulder to shoulder atop Sunset Rock to drink in the sunset and utter quiet oaths to the majesties all around.

The western face of Sunset Rock plunges precipitously 15 stories to anchor in the earth below. From its base the ground slopes sharply across one intervening historic holding into the cleavage where Aspen Brook (a trickle or a torrent depending on the season and the whims of nature) does its prescribed part to drain the angular terrain all around.

Aspen Brook has its headwaters atop a high pass near the head of the Tahosa Valley. After passing in review at the foot of Sunset Rock, it meanders towards its confluence with the Wind River and then the Big Thompson River and flows on majestically into the valley where lies Estes Park. For a dozen centuries, Arapaho left their winter encampments on the lower elevations to find the headwaters of Aspen Brook and follow its lead to the lush hunting grounds at the foot of the mountains. In the waning days of the nineteenth century, this same pathway along the course of Aspen Brook became a well-traveled track for settlers, tinkers, trappers, visitors, or residents traversing the long miles from Denver up to Estes Park. Eventually a popular resting stop sprang up a few hundred yards from Sunset Rock on land granted under the Homestead Act to Anna Wolfrom. Quiet now, her historic Wigwam Tea House still stands in placid contemplation of its remarkable past beside this fabled pathway of culture and commerce now incorporated into the National Park. Often, it is told, refreshments procured from the Tea House were conveyed to Sunset Rock to be partaken amidst the splendor of its all-encompassing view.

But, Sunset Rock comes into its own at that hour of the day for which it is named. It is the best seat in the house when the curtain of evening rises, the lights dim, and a spectacular sunset show takes center stage. Nature’s pallet boasts an endless array of colors and pastel hues with which to paint the sky. As pure unadulterated inky darkness settles over the realm, lights wink on from the YMCA of the Rockies International Conference Center nestled in a distant valley. And, overhead our moon and planets audition their nightly ballet as a trillion brilliant specks of light materialize in a star-studded heaven. You simply don’t want to leave your seat. And, the day you claim Sunset Rock as your own, you will never have to.

HISTORY

Waves of history have washed over Monarch Ridge and Sunset Rock shaping their character and demeanor as much as the reverent winds that have cooled their faces or the summer rains that washed them. Paleolithic peoples traversed these rocks and rills and valleys 11,000 years ago. We know this to be so because a careless few in their number lost tools for us to chance upon. Carbon dating these priceless relics allows us to accurately chronicle and notate the presence of these early sojourners in the annals of time. Peoples of the Arapaho brotherly band and tongue were the earliest first-nation Americans to harvest game on these slopes and in these valleys. They came as summer gatherers and hunters. They scrapped with envious prairie Apaches and Utes from the western slopes to protect their singular paradise. They breathed the thinner air to trap eagles atop the colossus of Long’s Peak and harvest their coveted feathers. The path their moccasins scoured in the course of this noble mission lay at the base of Sunset Rock. And, returning in the dimmer light on the cusp of a day well spent, they could pause upon the rock’s lofty pulpit for a moment’s reflection as the sun fell captive to the mountains’ lure. Whatever powers or deities were honored by the Arapaho, at Sunset Rock these proud peoples could stand tall, acknowledge their faith, and offer their fealty. The Arapaho referred to their domain hereabouts as simply “The Circle of Life.” All who live here today with knowledge of the Arapahos’ wisdom concur that the eternal “circle of life” is nowhere better evidenced or enjoyed than in the humbling presence of these mountains.

WINDCLIFF

You need only to stand atop Sunset Rock at Monarch Ridge one time and allow your gaze to drift for 360 degrees around to realize how unbelievably private is this place. It is as if the world in its entirety is yours. A privacy curtain of trees and terrain isolates you from view. Your 17.464 acres at Monarch Ridge will forever keep the world at a respectful distance. Yet caring and nurturing neighbors are surprisingly close at hand.

Monarch Ridge with its prime building envelope at Sunset Rock is attached to and a part of the most-dynamic and prestigious neighborhood community in Estes Park. It is known throughout the nation and the world as “Windcliff.” Your formal address is 3423 Eaglecliff Circle Drive, Windcliff Estates, Estes Park, CO 80517. Monarch Ridge’s acreage is legally registered as Lot 2, Duncan Subdivision. This historic holding was annexed to Windcliff Estates in 2011 and is offered here in its entirety. Your private driveway exits Windcliff’s Eaglecliff Circle Drive via an easement in perpetuity through Windcliff-designated green space. Its pathway progresses for 280 feet, winding gracefully to spare specimen trees, to the base of Sunset Rock. Here a 15,000-square-foot building envelope incorporating Sunset Rock awaits the fulfillment of your loftiest aspirations. A meticulously-engineered Site Plan has been crafted for Monarch Ridge and Sunset Rock by Van Horn Engineering of Estes Park.

Windcliff is a stunning collection of 150 residences architecturally designed and engineered for their mountain environment. Architectural awards hang on the walls. Some are year-around residences. Some are seasonal homes for those who choose to spend a part of each year with the mountains. Like sunflowers inclining their faces to the sun, these homes all face west in homage to the mountains. Glass is a dominant architectural element as glass walls invite the mountains in. Here reside CEOs, lawyers, judges, accountants, engineers, teachers, industrialists, doctors, building contractors, and entertainers with a plethora of degrees surpassed only by the extraordinary sum of their life experiences. Yet, for all of the accomplishments embodied within the Windcliff community, you will find your neighbors to be the least pretentious collection of individuals you have ever met. So truly majestic are the mountains ‘round about that they inevitably exert a humbling influence on all who choose to dwell in their presence. All mantles by which one is measured in the world at large are simply hung in the closet when returning to Windcliff. To see who or what is truly important or transcendent in the midst of such mountain majesty, lift your gaze to the eagles soaring overhead in their inimitable and timeless flight. Or watch a bear and her cub as they forage for the simple essentials of life. At Sunset Rock, Monarch Ridge, Windcliff, there is a peace that marries time and space in perfect harmony.

The Windcliff community exists along five miles of privately-owned roads that ultimately ascend over 1,500 feet above the 7,522 base elevation of Estes Park. These roads are maintained by Windcliff’s own dedicated and professional “Operations” crew manning an arsenal of modern equipment from road grader and back hoe to snow plow, salter, and sander. The Windcliff Property Owners’ Association is the collective author of the mutual covenants that protect both the appearance and the private demeanor of the community. The W.P.O.A Board of Directors is comprised of elected members who are no strangers to the boardroom. So efficiently is the mountain managed that the current annual assessment is $903 for Monarch Ridge and Sunset Rock (or any other site waiting to be built) and $3,403
for homes existing or under construction.

WINDCLIFF HISTORY

Windcliff has a story well-stitched to the crazy-quilt history and lore of Colorado. Frank L. Webster was an executive and Sunday Editor of the Denver Post newspaper. He was lauded as “the best all-around newsman in the West!” Frank’s heart was bound forever to the Estes Valley from the moment of his first encounter when his stagecoach crested the flank of the mountains and spread the waiting valley before him. The same Homestead Act of 1862 that granted Monarch Ridge and Sunset Rock to Martha M. Sullivan accorded Frank and Cora Webster the will and the right to apply for their own 160 acres. The $16 filing fee for his tract is duly recorded and dated 1897. Within the prescribed five years, Frank and Cora had fulfilled the stringent requirements of the Homestead Act and in 1902 a sturdy log home was raised and christened “Windcliff.”

Cora brought refinement and culture to the mountains. She and Frank entertained the elite of their day. Pulitzer Prize recipient and publisher William Allen White was often to be found at table. The Kelloggs of Battle Creek and Enos Mills, the naturalist “father” of Rocky Mountain National Park, engaged in lively banter around the evening fire. Intense and earnest lobbying by Enos Mills culminated in Congressional approval for the creation of Rocky Mountain National Park. Congress’s actions were signed into law by President Woodrow Wilson January 26, 1915.

On September 4, 1915, crowds gathered for a “Grand Opening” at Horseshoe Park in the new National Park to celebrate this seminal event. The banner headline of Frank Webster’s Denver Post proclaimed, “DREAM OF ENOS MILLS REALIZED AS CROWDS ATTEND DEDICATION OF SCENIC WONDERLAND.” Rocky Mountain National Park was a reality! None had a better view of all that was being wrought that day than those who chanced to stand atop Sunset Rock. What a jubilant and celebratory party Frank and Cora Webster must have thrown that evening!

“Windcliff,” the Webster home, still stands here on the mountain in the midst of the community that bears its name. It offers daily witness to the fortitude of our forebears and the breadth of their visions.

The Windcliff we embrace today was the dream and, ultimately, the creation of Don and Wylene Buser — an Iowa dentist and his talented wife. It is easy and proper to draw parallels of this extraordinary couple with Frank and Cora Webster. Wylene’s civility, Don’s tenacity, and their overriding love of the mountains surmounted all obstacles and set in motion the carving and creating of the magnificent mountain community that stands here now. They defied granite and gravity to lay roads, water lines, and sewers. They laced the mountain with electricity. From the clay of the Webster land allotment a masterpiece was wrought. A stunning outcropping of granite second only to Sunset Rock juts proudly in the midst of Windcliff and bears the name “Buser Park” in perpetual recognition of what they accomplished.
It is one of the many elements of green space that adorn the mountain.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK

Rocky Mountain National Park has been named by
National Geographic Magazine as
“One of the Best Destinations of the World!”

“Know thy neighbor!” That admonition is particularly appealing and inviting when your neighbor is Rocky Mountain National Park. Ecosystems are stacked one on top of another like a layer cake — grasslands and montane forests on the bottom, desolate tundra on top, and every possible flavor of transition in-between.

Long’s Peak dominates the Park with its snow-capped mantle at 14,259 feet. Its name pays homage to the Stephen H. Long exploratory expedition of 1820. Summiting Long’s Peak is a coveted achievement for tens of hundreds of visitors every summer. The ascent entails trekking roughly eight miles up along mountain paths and over boulder fields to where, standing before you, looms the final breathtaking track to the top. It is 4,850 feet up from the base camp and 4,850 feet back down!

Whether you have an appetite for the smorgasbord of summits in Rocky Mountain National Park or you just want to sample and admire the flora and the fauna, three splendid visitor centers stand ready to assist in both planning and execution. The Park Headquarters at Beaver Meadows is an architectural treasure attributed to the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture at Taliesin West.

The Continental Divide tiptoes along the crest of the Rockies as it trends generally from north to south. Rain or snow falling on slopes east of the Divide are destined to flow to the Atlantic via the Gulf of Mexico. Moisture nourishing the terrain west of the Divide will be absorbed in time in the bosom of the Pacific or the Gulf of California. One anomaly contrary to these normally-inviolate truths relates to the Never Summer range of mountains on the northwestern fringe of Rocky Mountain National Park. Because the Continental Divide and the mountains it sits astride reverse direction for a time and trend back in a northerly course, the Atlantic waters are temporarily on a western slope while the Pacific waters drain briefly east. (Try sketching this if it seems too implausible.)

One river born on the western flanks of the Rocky Mountains has grown to enjoy enormous stature and fame. The Colorado River, author of the Grand Canyon, has its source and headwaters in the northwestern corner of Rocky Mountain National Park. Dreading to leave the land of its birth, the Colorado loiters, meandering from side to side through intermountain meadows and marshes. Moose forage in its waters. Fish glisten in sunny pools. Every specie known to the park pauses to drink from its virgin waters. Then, gorged with contributions from scores of feeder creeks and springs, the Colorado River rests for a time amidst the waters of Grand Lake, Shadow Mountain Lake, and Lake Granby. Finally, having come of age and proud to carry the mantle of the State of its birth, it begins its journey coursing to the sea.

Three roads distinguish themselves in Rocky Mountain National Park. One is both the partner and the namesake of a river. Fall River Road climbs along the track laid down by the river in its descent. The road was hewn from the landscape in ascending switchbacks by convict labor shortly after the National Park came into being. It was the first road across the Continental Divide in the Park negotiable by wagons, carriages, and the fledgling vehicular traffic of the day. Today Fall River Road is “one-way” accommodating ascending vehicles bearing awestruck sojourners as they stairstep up the mountain switchbacks to the Alpine Visitors’ Center. There travelers connect with Trail Ridge Road (U.S. Highway 36) and can descend via this fabled route back to Estes Park or journey on west into the sunset.

Trail Ridge Road is the modern-day through highway that connects the eastern and western gateways of the Park. Trail Ridge Road crosses Milner Pass at 12,183 feet. Other roads reach higher elevations in Colorado (i.e., Pikes Peak at 14,110 feet or Mt. Evans at 14,264 feet) and then turn around. Trail Ridge Road is characterized as the “highest continuous highway” in the United States. It not only takes you up, it also carries you onward. Trail Ridge Road is enhanced by scores of overlooks and trailhead pull-offs. Elk herds feast on alpine grasses. Marmots and pikas frolic. Big Horn Sheep strike their photogenic poses against a sky of crystal blue brilliance. The Alpine Visitor Center near the summit is a treasure trove of informative displays, ranger briefings, and informal dining.

But, the “road less far” in Rocky Mountain National Park is Bear Lake Road. As roads go, this is the most precious pearl in the strand. Bear Lake Road derives its name from its destination. The turning to Bear Lake is well-sign-posted just inside the Park’s entrance at Beaver Meadows. The road descends for a time to cross the scoured sprawl of Moraine Park, the rumpled bed of a now-receded glacier. Deer graze as coyotes lurk. Bear Lake Road then vaults the cascades of the Big Thompson River before beginning its ascent to “heaven on earth.” Bear Lake mirrors the towering ramparts of Hallet Peak whose glacier-hewn crags and cirques define the term “mountain majesty.” It captures the runoff from the gradual seasonal demise of the Tyndall Glacier. Bear Lake is THE “not-to-be-missed” destination in Rocky Mountain Park.

ESTES PARK

Monarch Ridge and Sunset Rock come with limitless access to a wonderful town thrown in at no extra charge! Estes Park, Colorado (80517), is the postal address of Windcliff, Monarch Ridge, and Sunset Rock. Estes Park was recently voted the Number 2 “America’s Favorite Small Town” by readers of Travel and Leisure Magazine. That admiring accolade confirms that travelers from around the world now recognize what local citizens have known all along!

The word “Park” in “Estes Park” was every Colorado trapper’s term for “valley.” To this day “Estes Valley” is the name that resounds when referring to both the town and its environs. Those first non-native and intrepid explorers must have been speechless when first they crested the last of the great foothills poking from the eastern prairies and gazed down into the verdant sprawl of our valley with its mountains all around. As they imbedded their first footprints upon the valley carpet and drank from its springs, glaciers crept quietly down from the summits for a closer look at this new breed of visitor. The date was sometime prior to 1850. Soon thereafter a hunting expedition comprised of Joel Estes and his son, aspiring ranchers from Missouri, traversed the valley and were mesmerized by its majesty and its potential for fulfilling their dreams. In 1859 Joel Estes moved his entire family here — lock, stock, and proverbial barrel — and founded the town that bears his name.

In 1872 a Scottish Earl, Lord Dunraven by name, arrived in Estes Park and contrived to take over the entire valley as a private hunting domain. He was moderately tolerated at first, but as his intentions became known, he was escorted from the valley in a less-than-ceremonious fashion.

William Byers, a newspaper editor, reached the summit of Long’s Peak in 1864, passing Sunset Rock enroute to the base camp. He climbed Long’s Peak not to collect eagle feathers, but to test himself against the ascendant challenge this massif posed to mortals. He proclaimed the world hereabout that he surveyed from on high a “pristine wilderness.”

Drawn by such reports, Isabella Bird arrived in Estes Park in 1873 from England. She was the daughter of an Anglican Minister. After an arduous passage ‘round the Cape of Good Hope, she landed at San Francisco and journeyed overland to reach Colorado. She, too, passed in the shadow of Monarch Ridge determined to master Long’s Peak. We trust that she paused atop Sunset Rock’s lofty promontory upon her descent to contemplate and revel in the magnitude of her accomplishment. After all, she recounts at times being hauled upward by her guide “like a bale of goods.”

William Henry Jackson trained his camera lenses on Estes Park and its surroundings that same summer. His masterpieces survive today at the Estes Park Museum. Much of the foreground in his photos has changed, but not the stoic majesty of the mountains on every hand.

The MacGregors, Alex and Clara, became part of the picture when they homesteaded in the Estes Valley in the shadow of Lumpy Ridge. Alex and Clara not only prospered at ranching, Alex organized an enterprising team to construct a toll road along the pack horse trail from Lyons, Colorado, up to Estes Park. Today that early route is mimicked by U.S. Highway 36. The MacGregor’s ranch and home were magnificently situated and survive today as a working ranch museum just minutes from downtown Estes Park.

MacGregor’s new road insured an initial trickle of visitors that, once the word got around, became a torrent. When F. O. Stanley, the inventor-creator of the Stanley Steamer automobile, came west to Estes Park from Connecticut on doctor’s order to live out his few remaining tuberculosis-fraught years, he thrived both in health and in wealth. He built Estes Park’s landmark Stanley Hotel in 1909. Today it is a jewel in the crown of Grand Heritage Hotels and a focal point of community life.

The rest, as they say, “is history!” And, by this offer we invite you to be an author of Rocky Mountain history as yet unwritten.

WELCOME!

A popular wall hanging often seen hereabouts in Estes Park says simply, “I wasn’t born in Colorado, but I got here as quickly as I could!” Monarch Ridge and Sunset Rock at Windcliff now await your emulation of Joel Estes’ — “moving lock, stock, and proverbial barrel” to our mountains. Scarcely could you find more blue skies to shine upon your countenance. Mountain streams babble incessantly of wondrous days now past and the specter of enchanting days to come. Beasts of the wild bellow their intent to share the abundance of time and space forever resident in their domain. And, BEAUTY — simple breath-taking BEAUTY far beyond one’s normal perception of the word — is here for the taking to enrich one’s eyes, one’s heart, and the very depths of one’s soul.

Anchor your home, your hearth, and your dreams upon the mighty plug of Rocky Mountain granite at Sunset Rock and you will build upon the sturdiest foundation imaginable. Build upon the lore and legends of centuries flown by, and the generations you leave behind will gratefully add your chapters and stories to those to be told in centuries and millennia to come.

I will lift mine eyes unto the hills
